I started coordinating the plasma project's activity at this year's Akademy. In support of this, I started a page on our wiki and a thread on our mailing list. For Plasma contributors, there's a topics area on the wiki page where we are building a list of the topics the various people attending want to address while we are there.
More interesting to the rest of the KDE world (or so I hope :) is the Plasma Frenzy we're planning. Just as we did in 2008 (I missed the 2009 Akademy, sadly), it will be a series of quick presentations, each 3-10 minutes long and about a different aspect of Plasma that we are working on. Anyone doing something interesting with Plasma who will be at Akademy is welcome to present what they are doing, and everyone who is interested in Plasma and wants to keep up with our latest twists, turns, blunders and/or brilliance is welcome to join us in the (hopefully participative) audience. It looks likely to be scheduled right after the Plasma animations workshop on Wednseday morning. Mark your calendars! :)
The Plasma team will also be hosting a Plasma Feedback Round Table. This is a session for us to sit around a room with other interested / concerned KDE folk. We will answer the questions those attending have to the best of our abilities (and record the ones we don't have answers for to do further research on them), and discuss ideas regarding Plasma now and in the future with all in attendance.
The goal of this Round Table is extend the reach of Plasma in the KDE community and for KDE contributors to have more input into what we are doing, all in a constructive and open atmosphere. Each attendee should be able to walk away with a better understanding of Plasma, and for the Plasma team to walk away with a better understanding of what KDE wants / expects / hopes / needs from Plasma in the future.
If you would like to attend, add your name to the list at the bottom of the wiki page and optionally note your KDE affiliation. If there is a shortage of room (hopefully not!), those on the list will get preferential admission to the round table. See you there!
